Introduction

On March 26, 2012, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published its Final Rule, updating the Hazard Communication Standard that addresses hazardous chemicals in the workplace to be in alignment with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The GHS is a worldwide initiative to promote standard criteria for classifying chemicals according to their health, physical and environmental hazards. It uses pictograms, hazard statements, and the signal words “Danger” and “Warning” to communicate hazard information on product labels and safety data sheets in a logical and comprehensive way. The primary goal of GHS is better protection of human health and the environment by providing chemical users and handlers, emergency first responders and the public with enhanced and consistent information on chemical hazards.
The information that is included in this course is in compliance with the GHS elements in the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard.
